Gas and Water Service Technician (Former Employee), Richmond, VASeptember 23, 2014
Pros: benifits, vacation/sick time, co-workers
Cons: management
overall not a bad place to work. Coworkers are fun and encourage and help you with your growth and development. The work is hard and challenging. The job can sometimes be physically demanding and you will not go home on time. The overtime is in abundance. sadly, the management is atrocious.

I worked in the Virginia Initiative to Employment not Welfare. (VIEW)
Chief Election Officer (Former Employee), Richmond, VAJuly 8, 2014
Pros: benefits, salary, work schedule was consistant, employers location
Cons: management, parking.
.My typical work day was data entry for Richmond Department of Social Services (RDSS) VIEW participants to go thru an assessment so their family could continue to receive subsidy. I would tag a pre-typed letter with their name, address and date of assessment. I learned to use various Virginia Department of Social Services computer data base programs. – more... Management was the not good at all. I was employed with RDSS for 18 years by then. I had never received negative evaluations. Under this new supervisor that I had at that time, I was given very negative evaluations and they were laden with lies. I was not able to prove that the evaluations were not conducive with my personality. Recently RDSS was in the news on how employees were fired, demoted and some even quit because of managements treatment to employees. My immediate supervisor was demoted to a position lower than this position. I got along wonderfully with my co-workers. The hardest part of my job was the daily mistreatment. The most enjoyable part of my job was interacting with the VIEW participants talking to them on the telephone also. I was the clerical support also for the Intensive Case Managers of the participants cases. I enjoyed my job duties – less

Working at City Hall
Council Budget Analyst (Former Employee), 900 E. Broad Street, Richmond, VAJanuary 24, 2014
Pros: working for the city
Cons: unqualified and insecure management
Exposure to City Governent was a mixed bag. It was exciting to be at the center of activity. However, the limitations and subsequent insecurity of the middle/departmental management make working there an iffy proposition.

Department of Public Health-Fiscal Assistant (Former Employee), Richmond, VADecember 19, 2013
Pros: n/a
Cons: n/a
The pay was decent for an entry-level position. The responsibilities ranged from washing cars, to handling corporate accounts, to repossessing rental cars from non-paying customers, to brokering contracts. All over the place - sometimes rewarding, sometimes physically dangerous. The benefit is that they will release you after about a year and a half – more... and potential employers will realize how hard you've worked and how excited you are about doing just about anything els – less
